FIFA 19 will be released Sept. 28, with the European Champions League featured throughout the game, publisher Electronic Arts announced today during EA Play 2018.
EA Sports picked up the license to the UEFA Champions League following the end of a 10-year deal between European sports body UEFA and Konami, for its Pro Evolution Soccer series. The Champions League is an annual contest featuring the best clubs in Europe. EA’s soccer simulation has long trumped PES for official licenses, though the absence of the elite Champions League had left a significant gap.
We’ll have more on FIFA 19 in the weeks ahead, including hands-on impressions and a full breakdown of the game’s modes and improvements over FIFA 18. It’s due to be released on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. Speaking of FIFA 18, a free trial of the game is available now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
